Chris Hausman and MaryKate Chillemi are both avid travelers, having worked in the States and abroad on a variety of farms and together have over 12 years of growing experience. This is their third season in operation, as Meadowland Farm. Together, they are always striving to grow, learn, and flourish as individuals and farmers.
In the fall of 2016, Chris and MaryKate met the Kraushaar family and were thrilled to begin leasing a portion of their farm in early 2017, as well as overseeing the already established orchard. Chris and MaryKate are continuing to do business under the property's historic name, Meadowland Farm, and are proud to be a part it's history. Before meeting Judah and Michele Kraushaar, they both thought they were years away from being able to afford leasing land of their own. They are incredibly thankful for all the support the Kraushaar family provides, without which, they would not have been able to pursue this venture.
